Requisite(s): 76106 Technology Law, Policy and Ethics (Capstone 1)
These requisites may not apply to students in certain courses.
There are course requisites for this subject. See access conditions.


This subject comprises the research, writing and communication of a solution to an approved topic in technology law. At the start of the subject, 'clients' pitch problems to students that need an innovative legal solution. Students undertake group work to provide a solution that requires high-order legal research, collaborative research, innovative and creative thinking and the capacity to manage a project and communicate a sustained and persuasive solution to the 'client'.

Students have the opportunity to critically analyse and evaluate the topic that they choose provided that their project proposes a solution to the client's issue. Students refine the project and apply an appropriate methodology to solve the project identified. Students develop their oral and written communication skills throughout the session through online discussions and workshops on central aspects to technology law problem solving. This includes discussion of methodology, project management, collaborative skills and the challenges and possibilities of technology.

Students are supported in the process through face-to-face workshops, online modules and feedback from their peers and academic supervisor. Students also develop skills in self-management by undertaking self-directed work and learning and by responding to and applying feedback.
